Cicero

"The evil is not in bread and circuses per se, but the willingness of the people to sell their rights as free men for full bellies and the excitement of games which would serve to distract them from the other human hungers which bread and circuses can never appease." -Cicero, Marcus Tullius

Crybullies

Unbelievable words from Dixiecrat-in-Chief, Ol' Slick Willy and the US Congress erupts with applause and a standing ovation:

Nepal

If so-called 'aid' isn't working foremost for clean, transparent, effective governance (what Nepal needs most along with free markets), then is it part of a very lethal system? 

Q: With millions upon millions of talented Nepalese, why is the #aid industry, operated chiefly by foreign interlopers (many of whom know little to no Nepalese language and culture--some do), the most lucrative industry in Nepal?

A: Poor governance. In other words, dysfunctional ruling gangsters abetted by indefinite aid schemes, colluding together (wittingly or otherwise). The result is oppression of millions upon millions of talented Nepalese.

Kathmandu Valley finally has a steady stream of electric power--not through international --through clean governance

Aid-Ridden Haiti and Beyond


Sadly, from years of observation in aid-ridden Nepal, this article on extreme malfeasance by aid agents in Haiti is more the norm than exception in the world of aid and development.
Aid industry workers and ruling gangsters typically profit the most from often deathly interventions (particularly lethal due to the overwhelming oppression of people and the pox of chronic poverty and all its ills including lack of hygiene and health care, disease and premature death, lack of education and opportunity, migration abroad to exploitative work and even slavery and so on--people are dying for want of clean, transparent rule of law).

The aid industry's highly compensated, self-serving social engineering has been warping societies for the worst while their personal bank accounts become swollen with tax-free pelf and they rack up merit points on social media. 

"Aid undermines what poor people need most, effective, transparent government." -Nobel Prizewinner in Economic Sciences 2015, A. Deaton

"Development isn't a matter of 'experts', it's a matter of human rights." -W. Easterly, New York University Development Research Institute


“The incompetence is mind numbing...The UN/INGO people I encountered were frequently out of touch…anachronistic in their thinking at best and arrogant and incompetent at worst.There is NO accountability in the UN system or international humanitarian system.
[The local people] wanted to help themselves...they are experiencing UN/INGO fatigue...” -Chelsea Clinton, excerpted from a letter to her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, reporting on the state of humanitarian intervention and foreign aid in Haiti after the earthquake of 2010.

Sodom and Gomorrah 2.0+?

Nepal Traveller...and the forgotten rights of the poor

“Aid cannot achieve the end of poverty. Only homegrown development based on the dynamism of individuals and free markets can do that...Development isn't a matter of experts, it's a matter of human rights.” -William Easterly, author of The Tyranny of Experts: Economists, Dictators and the forgotten rights of the poor
